Free Online Courses for Rehabilitation Professionals in Ukraine

We cannot express how deeply saddened we are to see our colleagues and friends’ worlds so suddenly turned upside down by conflict in Ukraine. We are working closely with international organisations and professional associations, in particular in relation to contributing to arising education and training needs. We would like to share the following opportunities that we have available for rehabilitation professionals in Ukraine and the wider community affected by the conflict.

Free access to Plus

If you are a rehabilitation professional in Ukraine we would like to provide you with free access to Plus so that you can continue your professional development and/or up-skill to meet new knowledge needs as a result of the conflict. You can gain your free access in one of the following ways:

    1. If you are an individual at one of the organisations that has partnered with Plus please contact them for your access.
    2. If you are an Ukraine based organisation and would like to have free access for your staff, students, or members please directly contact Rachael Lowe.
    3. If you are an individual and are not associated with an organisation in Ukraine please fill out the form below.

Courses in Ukrainian

There are over 700 courses on Plus and we are working hard to translate appropriate courses into Ukrainian:

  1. Courses in Ukrainian which can be found here.
  2. Courses in English which can be explored here

New courses to address emerging needs

We have created two new programmes related to the immediate needs resulting from the conflict, these are:

    1. Rehabilitation in Disaster and Conflict – this programme includes 9 courses and is available in English and Ukrainian.
    2. Understanding the Rehabilitation Needs of Displaced People – this programme includes 7 courses and is available in English and Ukrainian.

Existing courses for specific clinical needs

We understand there are specific clinical knowledge needs emerging and as a result would like to highlight related courses that are already available on Plus.  They are currently available in English, we are getting them translated as quickly as we can.

  1. Traumatic brain injury
  2. Spinal cord injuries
  3. Amputee rehabilitation
  4. Stroke

As the situation evolves the team at Physiopedia will continue to be nimble and responsive to the emerging education and training needs,  and assist in any way we can.
